An online event next month will provide detailed information for area students interested in learning more about attending a military service academy.
The office of U.S. Representative Elissa Slotkin (D-Lansing) is holding a Zoom session on September 11 at 6:30 p.m. for high school students in the 7th district who want more information on the nation’s military service academies: the United States Military Academy at West Point, the United States Naval Academy, the United States Air Force Academy, the United States Coast Guard Academy, and the United States Merchant Marine Academy.
The session will feature special guests from each of the academies who will provide information on their respective institution. It will also highlight requirements necessary to attend an academy, as well as the Congressional nomination application process.
This session is geared towards students who are considering applying to one of the academies in 2024, 2025, or 2026, but would also be useful for guidance counselors and school administrators who wish to better understand the application and nomination process. Registration is required to receive the log-on information.

“As a Member of Congress, I’m able to nominate up to ten individuals for each vacant academy slot allotted to our district,” said Slotkin. “The deadline for consideration of academy nominations is October 27 this year. If you have questions about the process, please contact email@example.com or call 517-993-0510.”
